Three years ago photographer Caroline Trotter was driving past fish sheds in St Andrews and saw local fisherman Jim Buttercase (above) sitting amongst the nets. She persuaded him to have his portrait taken and that was how Caroline’s series of portraits of Fife fisherman began. While Caroline was taking the pictures, her husband, the chef Christopher Trotter chatted to the fisherman about their favourite fish dishes providing inspiration for his recipes. The portraits and recipes are published in Caroline’s book and also appeared in an exhibition last year at the Scottish Fisheries Museum, Anstruther.
